"A reclusive man, retreating to the Irish countryside with his sister, finds himself one day at the portal to another dimension. Years later, amid the crumbling ruins of his home, a pair of travelers find his diary and its horrifying details of the terrors that stalked his world--grotesque, swine-like monsters crawling from an abyss to swarm about the doors, fierce storms that threatened to unleash malevolent supernatural powers, and a harrowing vision of the death of the solar system." -- back cover

Long before the supernatural detectives at the center of television shows such as Medium and The Ghost Whisperer hit the airwaves, there was "detective of the occult" Thomas Carnacki, the fictional detective created by William Hope Hodgson, author of the novel The House on the Borderland.

The night land by William Hope Hodgson ( )
12 editions published between 1912 and 2013 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sun has died, as have the stars. Not a solitary light shines in the heavens. The days of light are nothing but a legend-- they are a story told to soothe children. The last millions of humans still live in their Last Redoubt, but the end of their days is at hand. ... Beyond the Last Redoubt, though, the world is a mystery as unknowable as the depths of space. Bits of it still live-- there are creatures in the endless darkness remotely akin to humanity. Fires burn and shadows creep; cities and lights lie still; clothed and shrouded walkers glide in the darkness. Other creatures, vaster than hills and slower and more ponderous than glaciers, wait eternally for some unknowable apocalypse. Forces stir in the darkness. Messages pass across the Land. From their tower above the Redoubt, the Monstruwacians record it all--Publisher's description
